party. so you have seen, it's true, a republican party that has shifted to the right. barack obama has managed through issues like gun control and the right through organizations like the n.r.a. to paint them as out of step with the mainstream of america more successfully than the right has managed to depict the president as being out of step with the mainstream of america. chris: i want to ask you about the cover of a magazine, has the country moved more towards the gun control position or not because of the horror at newtown? >> i think they've moved some to that position. the n.r.a. still has a stranglehold, but the president can use the extremism of the n.r.a., who are acting like a bunch of crazies that's days to help sell the rest of his agenda. chris: this is too far out, and let's take a look at this right now. >> are the president's kid more important than yours? than why is he skeptical about putting armed security in our schools when his kids are protected by armed guards at their schools? chris: when you bring the kids of the president in, who are protected against kidnappi
is that the republican effort to oppose anything and everything proposed by obama almost like a parliamentary party was not rewarded. taking the debt ceiling hostage was not rewarded, calling the obama health care plan -- which was their own only a few years earlier -- socialism was not reward withed. rewarded. that means they have to begin to rethink themselves and, importantly, democrats will not automatically embrace the same tactics in opposition. so i think that was the important change that creates a new dynamic not that's going to solve our problems. there's going to be no sitting around the campfire in washington making nice to one another. but the possibility now exists for a real effort and a successful effort to deal with our most pressing problems. >> host: two familiar washington faces, thomas mann and norm ornstein.

and the president's moment in the spotlight but when the ceremony is done, all the parties, mr. obama will still have to deal with the republican led house of representatives, divided government in washington. sharon peter king of new york, the congressman with the best last name in congress, is with us this evening. mr. chairman, it's good to see you. as a republican and a member of a republican caucus that has had its own internal nights in recent days, what can the president do? he's a democrat. you know the partisanship. what can he do to hit a reset button. >> the partisanship is there. from the president's perspective, i think he should not be, i don't know if arrogant is the right word. he won the election. he won it fair and square, to doubt about that, but i think there's been a tone of almost like an imperious tone the last few times. i'm not saying it will guarantee results if he's more outreach and republicans respond. i think he should try it. even independent voters have told me they thought the news conference last week was had too much arrogance and some of his tone. having said
getting re-elected in 2014. they are worried about being challenged in a party primary. that is obama's real problem. >>neil: i look add joe biden, and at his swearing in, he had top democratic officials and governors from iowa, from south carolina, from new hampshire, all key democratic states four years out. what was that about? >> we know it is about 2016. he is off and running. >>neil: with owe without hillary clinton? >> that is the question. will he challenge hillary clinton if she runs. he is preparing the way in case she doesn't at which point he may very well be the frontrunner, or, if she does run he has a decision to make, does he think he can overcome her substantial edge? look, four years is a long-term. who knows. >>neil: she was a little over four years ago the frontrunner who spike was crazy to challenge and he could figure, biden, what the heck. >> at his age, he is 70 now so he will will be almost 74 so this is his last chance. of course he is preparing to run if he can. >>neil: do you also, looking at this, and joining the obamas and larry sabato as they finish up t

in about six hours from now. zoraida. >> all right. thank you very much, john. president obama better get all of his partying done tonight. his second term is in full effect already and that means the potential for great achievements, but if history is any indicator, the second term is where things can get messy. it's not like he wasn't warned. >> i'm more than familiar with the literature about presidential overreach in second terms. >> president barack obama's victory dance is about to become a dance against destiny. >> if we look back, some really great examples of really big things being done in second terms. but recent history, there is the potential for real disaster. >> i did not have sexual relations with that woman. >> according to polls by the gallop organization, second term presidents often end up with second-rate approval numbers. just ask trent duffy, former president secretary to president george w. bush. >> major combat operations in iraq have ended. >> a president's approval ratings who dropped 25%. >> if poll numbers drop down below 50, you will see the white house press
a vigil, it's more of a party. there are a lot of people in that room who paid a lot of money for this inauguration and prior to tonight to get barack obama re-elected. to get a flavor of what's going on in the room these are individual and corporate donors. to get tickets to this event if you were an individual if you wanted the washington package in addition to a couple seats to the parade or other items you had to donate 250,000 dollars if you were a corporation you had to donate a million. the packages went on down from there. four years ago he set a cap of 50,000 dollars on individual contributions and refused to accept any money from unions or corporations or lobbyists. they also capped any donations to 300,000 per donors. this time around they had a bit more of a cash crunch. in december he announced he would take unlimited contributions from individuals and corporations. unlike 4 years ago they would not be disclosing all of the information on the donors just names as opposed to all of the details. >> the total number is about 40 million they raised this time. that inc

and squeezed into the mall. there will be fewer today. here on the steps of the capital president obama will address the crowd. a timeless ceremony with contemporary touches. the national anthem will be sung by beyonce. this year's prime for a party and several hundred thousand people from across the united states have traveled here to be a part of it. the inauguration is a celebration of american democracy. a moment for their president to inspire, unite, and speak to his foes and fans. >> president obama leads a politically divided nation. the issues that he will tackle are contentious. today will be an extravagant party, but tough battles lie ahead. >> let's go to my colleague, who is in among the crowd, where hundreds of thousands of gathered to listen to the president. >> as you can see, dawn is breaking and there are literally hundreds of cameras arranged behind me, here to record this second historic inauguration of barack obama. hundreds of thousands of people flocking in. but amongst those who will be here today, thank you so much for coming. tell me, what made you want to be he
of folks at home saying mr. obama is throwing himself a big party while they are still struggling financially. they will address the intractable gridlock in this town. >> he will make that point very strongly that people here in washington need to see common ground. he will talk about the american people they are not engaging these debates in washington progress and change won't happen. >> aids say while we can expect more broadly on battles to come such as gun control and immigration reform this won't be the detailed policy speech we will get with the state of the union next month. >> james, i wonder if the president runs the risk of sounding too much like he has. he has given a lot of speeches. >> that is definitely a risk. some republican speech writers of white houses past have made that exact point harris saying current conditions could lead the president to repeat himself in 2009. economy remains sluggish healthcare remains too costly, et cetera. one historian interviewed the president from rolling stones magazines says mr. obama needs to revise faith in the american dream.
divide? i do not see any future of obama trying to get with the other party. he wants to heckle them, probe them like you would a mad cow or lion. host: is it more partisan than it has been in the past? guest: what is different is how it feels. you cannot escape it. the nature of cable tv, which is enormously significant disproportionate to its audience in studying the tone for the debate. talk radio, the internet. these are all means of communication that saturate and reinforce and exaggerate our differences. it is all about conflict. i think that as much as everything else contributes to the sense that people have that we are more divided than we have ever been before. george washington and john adams, a mob gathered outside washington's homa, denouncing his neutrality. host: we're looking at the veterans affairs secretary. the military, department of defense playing a big role in tomorrow's ceremony. guest: dwight eisenhower took very personally nixon's defeat. he said he knew how the condemned man felt, watching the scaffolding being built. host: people are talking about vice pre
for the party we lost. let's talk first about barack obama. what did you see in him the second time. i was not surprised by the first, but i was surprised by the second. you have been critical saying he needed to narrow his focus. what did you see in him the second time. >> nothing wrong with being critical and also supporting. what i saw in the second opportunity to be president of the united states is we had seen progress in the four years he had been president. the financial system was stabilized and the economy is picking up again. we are out of iraq and coming out of afghanistan. he handled terrorism quite well. i saw a guy getting the job done and deserving of a second term. the first term doesn't have the historic significance but there is a warm feeling about bringing a black man into the white house. he has done the job. has he done everything correctly or perfectly? no. i talk to him on a regular basis and we have a condit conversation. why did the republicans lose? as i tried to indicate it's not those of us who are being critical of them but for them to say
to say why are we lose something. >> barack obama endorsing him, we have to make our party better by criticizing our party. i think self reflection is in order and you do too. >> you lost a battle. you sit down sand say this is interesting. lots of favorable reaction from the republicans. reluctant to speak out from the tea party in 2014 or 2016. things have to change. when you lose by popular vote and electoral vote and you see that 73 percent per of asian-americans and hispanic americans and 94% of african-americans voted for the president and not the party, you have to ask yourself we have to do something about immigration or tone down some of the things we have been doing and should we have gone after reducing the turn out of voters in places where we thought it would make a difference. the republican party should say we want everybody to vote and make it easier to vote and give them a reason to vote and not find ways to keep them from voting at all. >> what do we do to get voters like you. people who identified with the republican party. i can tell you, every speech i give, i
, obama has largely kind of adhered to the clintonian new democratic party which is a more moderate party, than the one of say the 1970s. and one that is interested in looking seriously, it sees a deficit as a problem. clearly republicans and democrats see a different mix of taxes or spending cuts as best way to address that. what i think is hopeful, both do see this as a real problem for moving forward. shepard: secretary clinton there, with senator john kery, the secretary of state nominee at least. ab stoddard, i can't imagine that the fight for john kerry would be one that would drag on too long? >> no, that is not going to be but secretary clinton testifies tomorrow, wednesday on the benghazi incident. shepard: that should be quite a show. >> that will be quite tense. there was originally talk of delaying the nomination of john kerry until she committed to a date for that testimony, completed the testimony but there will be fights as i said on john brennan and chubb hagel and others even, jack lew. all people that, both parties expect to eventually be confirmed. fights nonetheless, r
, the historical themes of sacrifice for country, party unity. for obama the key theme is justice. if you go back to his major speeches, he tends to talk about a bargain between the american people and the government that if you play by the rules you will see the benefits and government has to be there to give you the benefits if you play by the rules. >> we're looking at the mall where everyone is happy and waving and one thing i have to say after having been on the mall four years ago, it was really cold. and -- >> you want to say how warm you are today, right? >> i'm very warm in the presence of my dear friends but also curious how different a second inauguration feels. >> i think it is. it's still to be celebrated and the re-election of president obama means that the first one wasn't a fluke and that's important. and i think it's especially -- i think it's especially important for african-americans that he has been re-elected and it puts in the serious ranks of chief executive and i agree with david this is a broad-brush time. i doubt there will be a sound of trumpets but i think we will see
put our shoulders to the wheel of history it moves. it moves. >> reporter: tomorrow mr. obama will be sworn in during a public ceremony. he'll give his inaugural speech then take part in a parade and series of inaugural parties and balls. here's a live look at the white house tonight. tori campbell has more on how mr. obama won a spot in history. >> that i will faithfully execute the office of president of the united states. >> reporter: the president is officially in his second term now. he was sworn in in the blue room of the white house with chief justice john roberts doing the honor. and you can bet that chief roberts said the words carefully. four years ago he said the oath wrong. so president obama is the first to have been sworn four times. this morning, joe biden was sworn in by sotomayor. then there was the wreath laying ceremony. and the first couple also attended the episcopal church for martin luther king celebration. >> reporter: when a president and vice president are sworn in it's only for a four year term so if they're reelected they needed to be sworn in for a
. tradition is we get out the long gowns and we party a little later. president obama and vice president biden kicked off the fun early. they attended a reception last night at the national building museum. both men talked about their inspiration for a better future this term. >> in the weeks and months ahead, we're going to reduce gun violence here in america. we're going to pass comprehensive immigration reform and put this nation's economy on a sustainable path to the future. >> the decency, goodness, the resilience, the neighborliness, the patriotism, the sense ability of the american people, you have inspired me throughout. >> talking about the business ahead in the second term for president barack obama and vice president with the first lady and joe biden of course. we will continue our coverage here. the sun is just about to come up. it looks beautiful where we are. it's pretty chilly. back now to you in the studio. >> it's cold out there. sunrise in four minutes . but what a beautiful scene. let's get right to the numbers. if you are heading down to the mall today, it will warmup into
. it is a highly sensitized -- centralized party. obama never really ran with the democrats in the house. he never gave them the money they wanted from his billion dollar trove. he never campaigned with them the way clinton even did. there is a lot of resentment by the democrats. they have expressed it to me, no less for the >> and a million more people voting for democrats in the house than the republicans and yet the republicans took the house by scores of seats because of gerrymandering. >> that is the excuse for it gerrymandering on both sides. the house democratic caucus put out a list of 60 dangers republican votes, they called it, that pass through the house but anti-women, anti-consumer, anti-environment, pro-empire, pro-corporate welfare, right? the democrats should have land slighted them. they did not use those 60. they did not use them in each congressional district. it was all about trace the middle-class, forget the poor, never mention the word for a minimum wage. it was all about raising money. they should have a landslided. when i went to the house in march of last year, leading de
barbarians at the gate. >> this gets right to the heart. people who are obama supporters believe that the republican party has been utterly obstructionists, mightily so, and utterly partisan since the first day. people say, we love to do business with this guy, but he never offers us anything. that would constitute an extended hand to the other side and save here are areas where we would agree and accept this and i believe that. this seems utterly bereft of an outreach to the opposition. >> i think there are two sides to this argument. the white house would certainly point out that mitch mcconnell was the one who said that our primary job is to make sure that barack obama is a one term president. there certainly has been a failure to get along, but i don't think you can lay on the side of the white house. and giving them the syncretic, they believe their vision of america's rights, there has been a strong opposition and use of filibuster unprecedented by senate republicans. the house majority has its view of the world. and i don't know that i would say that the republicans have b
. >> president obama also showing his lighter side last night by mentioning how much he loves mrs. obama's new hairdo, the infamous bangs and everybody talking about her new hairdo. >>> barbara walters is hospitalized this morning after she fell at appear inauguration party. the veteran news woman reported lid slipped saturday night on a step at the residence of the british ambassador to the united states and out cut her forehead. a spokesperson says the 83-year- old is awake and alert. >>> up next on this inaugural morning, air piece of presidential history. we'll tell you more about an important part of this morning's swearing-in ceremony and its ties to president lincoln.  >>> welcome back. today, of course, the national holiday honoring dr. martin luther king, jr. a wreath laying ceremony was held on sunday at the memorial for the civil rights leader on the national mall. among the dignitaries and celebrities on hand were martin luther king iii, reverends alsharpton and jesse jackson. sharpton called the dr. king day and inauguration weekend and intersection of histo
